President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that the nation's economy is getting better.


He declared this at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday after receiving briefings from the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma; the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun and Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in a statement, said the briefings lasted over two hours.

He said the ministers and CBN governor updated the president on the improving state of the economy, implementation of the 2017 budget, preparation for the 2018 budget, revenue strategies, combined cost reduction and debt management.

Adesina said "a delighted president declared that he was pleased with the progress being made on different fronts."

The presidential spokesman said monetary policy strategies and their economic impact, among others, were also discussed.

He said Buhari reminded the ministers and the CBN governor that reviving the economy was one of the major planks on which the campaign of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), was based.

He said President Buhari expressed gladness that things were "looking up after two years of yeoman's job."

According to Adesina, Buhari urged them to keep at it and noted that the main aim of government was to bring succour to Nigerians across all walks of life.
